2 day week 2.

Log entry for 27th of September 2015

It was a different 2 days so there is some variation.

Thursday, I revisit the Shubs, I hope they will be generous. I take on mostly Xanthippe but also Tempest the Eradicator and the somewhat worryingly named Castrantias the void. They are not generous and the return of 74% does not bring me joy in spite of the 2 small globals. I do get to 205/500 for the shub mission and the level percentage for Laser Pistoleer (hit) goes up to 94.76% so it’s not all bad.

Saturday, Space Skilling Saturday occurs.

For the week I have lost 268 PED which gives a return of 68%.

2 day week.

Log entry for 20th of September 2015

Saturday, I started my week on Saturday and I’m not writing about it until Thursday, I do not seem to have much time of late.

I paid a visit to the Shubs, virago and termagant. I managed a couple of globals and also got to the 90% mark on my way to the next level in Laser Pistoleer (hit). Later it was Space Skilling Saturday and later still a return to the Shubs.

Sunday, K’Tan Partathus Arch Follower of Cthulhu, I did particularly badly against these but did manage another global.

That’s the week, I managed to lose 450 PED, a lot considering the lack of activity, the return was 77%.

Kreltin!

Log entry for 13th of September 2015

Monday, I begin my week on Calypso, I wander from location to location hunting various creatures as I go, a fairly pointless exercise. I head to Crystal Palace where Wolta and I twice hunt Kreltin in a team, results were poor but as always we had fun. My reason for visiting Crystal Palace is to make use of a 10 hour 100% skill pill, try to gain a level in Laser Pistoleer (Hit) and kill as many Kreltin as possible to get me closer to the 5000 required to complete the current Iron Challenge. I begin this process today with my first solo session lasting one hour, followed by a quick visit to some terminals to resupply, repair and store before logging off. The loot looked poor and my subsequent calculations showed it to be very poor.

Tuesday, 2 more hours spent hunting Kreltin, each with a brief visit to the terminals afterwards. The first was again very poor whilst the second resulted in only a small loss and a couple of globals. Looking at my records I seem to be doing almost 100 Kreltin per hour (kph) and while skill gain is definitely greater than normal it is not as good as I had wished, it looks like I will fall short of the hoped for level gain.

Wednesday, 3 more hours completed today, each ending in the usual way, the first with a remarkably dreadful return, the second with a poor return and the third with a very poor return, something exceptional needs to happen soon if I’m to get close to breaking even on the week.

Thursday, another 3 hours and after the last hour an additional 17 minutes to finish off the pill. The first hour resulted in a small profit, the second in a small loss and the final 1 hour and 17 minutes in a second remarkably poor loss. Thankfully it’s over, that 9 and a bit hours cost me 1662 PED with a return of 64%, I’m rather pissed off about the amount of PED lost if I’m honest.

Friday, taking a rest but I do provide a warp transport.

Saturday, while I’m at Rocktropia I “Serve the Nation” for a short while but am still quite despondent from the Kreltin experience. Wolta and I return to Crystal Palace in readiness for Space Skilling Saturday.

That was the week, return was 62% and I lost a total of 2120 PED, I killed about 900 Kreltin and raised my Laser Pistoleer (Hit) to about 12% short of the next level, I’ve known better weeks.

Mostly Arkadia

Log entry for 6th of September 2015

Monday, I have no idea why but I decided to try swunting, finding myself some Gallards I spent 2.5 hours slowly accumulating sweat and despatching those who could provide no more. I found this oddly relaxing.

Tuesday, Wolta supplies an Arkadian Key 7, and she, Nocturaline and Myself go through this, we manage to do these in a little under an hour, if I remember correctly it allows 3 so we could try something bigger. This was good fun and when Wolta opened one of the boxes I received a Dehera Immolation Sword the MU of which is around the 1000% mark, Wolta tells me to keep this and that Nocturaline has agreed, it is very kind of them. I am not sure if I will use it but will keep hold of it for the time being and decide later. Later we provide a warp service which kept us busy for hours.

Wednesday, I’m swunting again, again I find this quite relaxing and I catch up on a few podcasts while doing it. Later I wander Arkadia looking for a mob that will drop Animal Muscle Oil, I have decided to try to complete at least the first part of Mission Galactica so collecting the necessary quantities of items is the place to start.

Thursday, I continue to wander Arkadia looking for Animal Muscle Oil, it seems few mobs drop much of this. Later it’s my turn to provide an Arkadian Key, an 8 this time. Wolta, Nocturaline and Myself did this but did not do as well as on Tuesday, it was fun though. It took us around 70 minutes, I think a key 9 will be tried at some point.

Friday, I go Underground and take on some Oratan Miners, I managed a couple of globals but still came out negative.

Saturday, Nocturaline has sold her Arkadia Underground Deeds to someone who ordered them on Auction, with the proceeds she has purchased a shop on Arkadia and now, just like bas she “has business on Arkadia” and can act as though she owns Arkadian Space. Space Silling Saturday occurs and after we go to Crystal Palace. I descend to the surface of Calypso where finding reasonable orders on Auction for Arkadain Underground Deeds proceed to sell mine. I had been looking to do this for a while as they make so little revenue, with the orders being reasonable and me needing to spend quite a lot of PED next week hunting Kreltin it seemed an opportune time.

Sunday, I do some crafting, all the warps on Tuesday night have reduced the number of jumps left in my Warp Drive to a point where I need to carry a replacement so it’s time to make a new one, it takes me 3 attempts (I had only the components for 4) but I have a replacement Warp Drive.

This week I lost 325 PED with a return of 79%, not bad considering I was quite busy. I’m sure the 10 hours I intend to spend hunting Kreltin next week will lose me significantly more.
